Quick Reference Resource: WikiLeaks CIA Vault7 Leak #16 – HighRise

HighRise is an android (V4.0 to V4.3) implant for SMS redirect to listening posts.

The 13th July 2017 WikiLeaks release overview:

“Today, July 13th 2017, WikiLeaks publishes documents from the HighRise project of the CIA. HighRise is an Android application designed for mobile devices running Android 4.0 to 4.3. It provides a redirector function for SMS messaging that could be used by a number of IOC tools that use SMS messages for communication between implants and listening posts. HighRise acts as a SMS proxy that provides greater separation between devices in the field (“targets”) and the listening post (LP) by proxying “incoming” and “outgoing” SMS messages to an internet LP. HighRise provides a communications channel between the HighRise field operator and the LP with a TLS/SSL secured internet communication.”

A HighRise User’s Guide was also published.

Previous Vault 7 WikiLeaks dumps #1 – #15 synopses are available on WikiLeaks and analysis of HighRise at The Hacker News.
